What's The Best Drug For My Left Hand Tremors And Stiffness In The Left Thigh?

I would never even think of having DBS. Out of the three people I know that had it one died, one got an infection which necessitated the removal of all the hardware. Sounds like fun. And the other became mentally impaired. Not only that it does not take care of the autonomic nervous system problems like those that exist in the GI tract. It basically treats tremors. Not good enough for the risk.

There is a new procedure that was recently approved by the FDA. It's called NEURAVIVE. It is a non-invasive procedure using ultrasound. You might go online for more information. It might be helpful for you.

I have had success with my DBS too but I have to exercise really helping me the last 3 years especially the Rock Steady Boxing classes have helped me walk better. I have people who have come up to me and say you seem to be doing better and I say I am and tell them exercising 5 times a week for an hour.

So you wouldn't think of having DBS.
Well let me tell you mate, I underwent DBS in 2009 with successful outcomes.
The last seven yars have been the best years of my life.
So what do you know about DBS? clearly very little.
